There's a theory in personal development circles that putting most energy into developing your strengths into "super-strengths" is a more effective pathway than improving your weakness' - providing none of your weakness' are "mission critical"

Where a weakness could be deemed "mission critical" (in other words it will hold you back in a major way), then it could/should be a focus for improvement. Otherwise, focus on developing your strengths.

I've not experimented much with this is a sporting context, but it is a theory gaining much ground in the corporate world and something I am experimenting with with a couple of athletes at the moment.

Don't be upset by the results you didn't get from the work you didn't do...
